shoving and all-out brawl erupted. punches were thrown and one seahawks' player was ejected. the crowd could be heard booing as the referees try to break up the brawl. [ booing ] this was the scene at gillette stadium in foxboro, massachusetts the moment the patriots won the game. you can tell many people were happy about it. just a few minutes earlier though the crowd was quiet when it looked like seattle was going to win. and take a look at the space needle in seattle. it was lit up last night in seahawks' colors. city decided to set off fireworks anyway even though their team lost. they should still celebrate the team. >> absolutely. well next year's super bowl will be played at levi's stadium in santa clara and other parts of the bay area can expect to cash in on that as well. events will be all over the region leading up to the big game and san francisco mayor lee is expecting huge crowds and some big business.

area. the plant in martinez employs more than 400 people. they plan no join the strike as soon as the refinery can be shut down safely. and that's likely to happen sometime today. one local expert says gas prices will not likely go up immediately but if the strike drags on, expect to pay more. >> if the strike goes on for a while, the refineries probably can't continue to run at their normal level. and we may start to see a splay shortage. -- supply shortage. >> the topics include wages, health care costs, safety the use of contractors, and staffing. chp looking into a fiery car crash that killed two men and a woman in east san jose. it happened just before 2:00 yesterday morning. right off highway 101 near the 280/680 before change. it crashed into the -- interchange. it crashed into an embankment and burst into flames. san francisco's dealing with a rash of port a potty fires. a witness shot cell phone video

and also the higher elevations of the bay area. now we're not talking about a whole lot of rain. it's not going to be a -- a gutter washer. but nevertheless it will be much-needed. meanwhile today around the state 70 degrees in fresno. 66 monterey bay through caramel. we did see some record high temperatures over the weekend as well in lake tahoe. today locally numbers average -- locally the numbers we're going with 66 in san francisco. we should be at 59 in san jose so 71 that tells you just how mild it is for the winter day. 69 in throughout the tri- valley. we'll cloud it you up by thursday leading to the potential for rain showers late thursday evening into your friday. with gusty winds and daily chances of rain over the weekend. hey you know what? let's track all the together. all you have to do is get the cbs bay area weather app. you can check conditions in your own area and you indeed can get realtime radar. this is important. you have to search kpix 5 and
then that download the cbs bay area weather app. it's available to all on iphone and android. liz? thank you roberta. and let see this has been one of the greatest starts to the morning commute we've seen in some same. caltrans workers easing on into the week no major roadwork projects. we'll show you usually one of the first spots to slow down that commute out of tracy area altamonte pass and that's actually picking audiotape little bit of steam within the last ten minutes. you can see the yellow sensors popping up on 205 all the way out to about north flynn. it's not enough to affect the drive time yet. and once you hit the livermore valley, everything clears out all the way to the dublin interchange and we can show you a live look. all the headlights that's the commute direction and everything continues to move well into the dublin grade. you just missed it the zipper crews were out there trying to get another fourth southbound lane open in the commute directionment it doesn't matter much at this point. everything is great out of sausalito. bay bridge, just slight delays now in the far right cash lanes and we were seeing it stack up in the left cash lanes.
fastrak users no delays and no road work to slow you down between oakland and san francisco. here's a live look at the san mateo bridge that drive time is still the same as about ten minutes ago. it's still about 14 minutes in both directions between san mateo and foster city if you're heading to the peninsula. 880 to overnight road work is not there this morning. we're not seeing it between oakland and san leandro. usually hit it before 5:00. everything is gone. 15 minutes between 238 and the maze. and is silicon valley commuters, westbound 237 still looks great into sunnyvale and mass transit still on time. we do have some news about golden gate ferries hold on that to and make you stay tuned for another ten minutes. in the meantime back to you guys. all right liz thank you. the federal government has announced another major autorecall. it involves more than two million vehicles made between 2002 and 2004. that could have faulty air bags. the recalled vehicles are the
acura mdx, honda odyssey. pontiac vibe and three toyota models. and call your dealer for more information. a push to build another b.a.r.t. tunnel under the bay is gaining momentum. san francisco mayor ed lee and officials in alameda have recently talked about adding another transbay two that would allow b.a.r.t. to offer 24 hour service and would help ease delays if there's a problem in the other tunnel. but it won't come soon. and it won't come cheap. it could cost $12 billion to build and take decades. even the first steps in the planning process aren't likely to begin before 2017. well, a bizarre case of alleged dui in the upper midwest. a guy arrested for drinking and driving on top of that a zamboni machine. it happened during a high school hockey game in fargo, north dakota. fans noticed the driver waving all over the ice and spectators
calling the police when he crashed into the boards. >> a very strange call and i was very surprised to receive it. obviously we have zero tolerance for situation like this. i mean this just cannot happen. i'm extremely grateful that no one was hurt because someone could have been seriously injured or possibly even killed in a situation like this. >> so how did someone get busted for dui without being on a public street? well in north dakota their law says anybody who's intoxicated while operating any motor vehicle can be arrested and that man was arrested. time now 4:52. this can't be good for business. the extensive damage to a building when a massive boulder

deliver things like meals and medication linens and lab specimens. looking into the death of a man whose body was found along a walking path. investigators say the man in his 70s was found dead about 4:30 yesterday afternoon on the west street pathway near delaware street. police consider the case suspicious because so far, there's no obvious cause of death. happening today, all three of the giants' world series trophies on display in san mateo. these are scenes from hayward last week. today anyone can see the trophies and take a picture starting at 4:00 p.m. that's at the san mateo elks lodge on west 20th avenue. next stop is tomorrow at municipal stadium in san jose. it's 4:56. super bowl xlvix ends with -- super bowl xlvix sends with dramatic -- ends with dramatic fashion and now all eyes are on the bay area

bridge toll plaza right now. liz said about a half hour ago she thinks everyone is sleeping in after the super bowl. maybe, yes that could be the case because not too much of a backup. i'm michelle griego. >> and hi everyone, i'm frank mallicoat. it is 5:00 on your monday. and wow, what a dramatic finish super bowl xlvix last night. a bay area connection decided for the deciding -- accounted for the deciding score for the patriots. tom brady finding redwood city's julian edelman there in the end zone for the touchdown with just two minutes left. and seattle marches down the field with the help of this catch right there. the circus grab. it appeared seattle might win in the final seconds but the patriots will pick the ball off on the goal line. sealing a 28-24 victory. new england's fourth super bowl winner. in six tries. now there's a year to go until super bowl 50 and it's going to be played right here in the bay area. >> and members of the host committee traveled to arizona to get some insights on what works and what doesn't.
